Michael Christian who tours with Andre Kole has a really nice version. He turns the mirror to the side so you can watch him enter from the back and come out the front.

It is fairly cheap that he sells it for. I believe less than $1500.

You can contact him through Andre's site.

I never realized this would be taken as a "magic effect" but I was helping out behind the scenes at an "alice in wonderland" play, and I arranged for alice to pass her hand through a mirror as she entered wonderland. I totally did not expect the gasp that came from the audience. After the show "alice" and several other people were approached as to how that was done. My insticts were not to let on, but the others were not magicians and let the method out easily. Truthfully I never expected to shock anyone, and I guess that made it pretty good magic.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

I could give you an idea I have. It isn't a mirror penetration but it is a solid penetration with no covor. Heres the effect, A frame with spandex streched all the way across it. The magician goes behind it and his hands are seen pounding the material from the front. His hands push through until his whole body is seen oushed against the spandex. The assistants then spin the frame so it is sideways and the magician is seen literally inside the spandex! The image of his front is seen in the spandex and his back from the back. He is trapped inbetween the peice of spandex. The frame is then turned so you are seing the magicans back. The image starts to fade and the magician walks away from the frame, he has passed through the spandex with no cover. PM me for method

This sounds hauntingly similar to one I came up with years ago when inspired by Harary's "2-D" idea. Franz and I even discussed the possibility of combining the two so that the mage got stuck inside the mirror (which could be turned about and shown to be less than an inch thick, etc. The Mage's form obviously trapped within the glass.) From here, the spandex was replaced and a quasi-profile view given, so as to allow a 3-D extraction from within the mirror.

Sometime in the early and mid 1990s there were numerous creative minds thinking along the same line of course when it came to passing through a mirror. Ken Whitaker and I came up with at least two methods as well as the aforementioned.

I perform my mirror penetration using the cover in front of it and it gets an awesome reaction. I use one that I had custom built.

THank you all for your intrest in my spandex penetration. I've had many people PM me about it however because I want it to be a fairly low key illusion (if everyone here builds it and performs it that would publicize it) so I will not accept any more PM's about method. I hope you understandhow ever if you have an illusion idea and want to know some methodideas please ask!
Thank You,
Aptaker

-always glad to help someone think of a method for an illusion "just ask!"

HI all,
I'm curious to see what you all think. I don't want to sound like a cheap magician or someone who's geared towards money, but I wanted to ask a question. My illusion ideas are very personal to me and I was wondering what you guys think about charging a small and I mean microscopic fee for illusion ideas of mine. I'm always glad to help people think of things for free but I wanted to know the following:
Do you think it's reasonable to charge a small amount for my illusion plans? (we're talking like a dollar here)
If yes, how much is reasonable to charge?
If no, why? (if the answer is no that's fine I just want to see what people think)

If I did charge it would be through paypal which is a secure invironment, I'm not trying to get money, one of the reasons I'm thinking of doing this is more to deter people who just want to know methods and more serious builders would be buying them.
Let me know what you think,
Aptaker

If you want to keep the merely curious away then you won't do that by charging just a dollar and if you charge more then people are going to expect more. Bit of a tricky situation here mate.

That is true. I'm not sure what to do, if I charge more such as 15 dollars (Still half of what usual plans cost) than people would expect blue printed detailed illusions which I cannot offer, only methods, and simple building tips. Do you think taht what I have to offer is worth 15?
